To achieve the greatest impact, letters should be directed to one person in an organization who is at a sufficiently high level to take action.
In this case, it seems appropriate to direct communications to:
Warner Bros. Entertainment
Executive Vice President, Worldwide Corporate Communications and Public Affairs
Time Warner Inc.
One Time Warner Center
New York, NY 10019-8016
As the Executive Vice President for Warner Brothers’ Worldwide Corporate Communications and Public Affairs, Ms. Fleishman will understand the need to present a clear, consistent, respectful message to Time Warner’s customers and will also understand how the public comments made by DC executives can counteract marketing efforts and harm revenue streams.
In addition, in any emails sent to Time Warner, document Dan DiDio’s comments, the drastic decrease in female creators in the DCnU, and then compare these actions and comments to Time Warner’s publicly-stated corporate diversity policy, found here:
It is far more difficult for DC to claim it has the best creators possible (either in terms of critical or commercial success) when that does not match available data and also does not abide by Time Warner’s internal policies governing this subject.
The main switchboard telephone number for Time Warner is (212) 484-8000, but leaving voice mail is significantly less effective than written communication.
In the next day or so, I’ll draft a letter to Time Warner and post it here; as with all documents posted here, please feel free to reblog them, tweet about them, email them and use them. I want to stress that these documents are tools, and that I’m trying to build a framework for engagement so that people can participate at whatever level of commitment they choose.
In return, please submit your comments, your letters to retailers, Time Warner or other related organizations, and your suggestions. I’d love to publish them here and your letters may be useful to other people who might be struggling to find their voice.
